We know we live in an expensive city.
We know we’re one of two cities out of the top 100 metropolitan areas in the US where it’s cheaper to rent than buy.
And yesterday we read the SFGate article that discussed the recent boom and how some are fearing a bust will follow.
We’re curious what you’ve noticed over the past year in Hayes Valley. Has rent actually increased more than normal, or are we romanticizing the recent past? Has anything else gone up in price aside from housing?
(And is it just us, or have open houses become scarier than usual?)
